RCM&E May 2017 issue preview

Take a look at what is in our next issue

 

ON THE COVER

Dave Roberts, RCM&E's Special Issue editor, flew out to the World F4 Championships in Romania last summer and his event report appeared in 2016's Special.

He took the time to interview some of the competitors and his first, with the winner, Andreas Luthi of Switzerland, is published this month. Andreas’ fabulous Jungmeister has accrued a cabinet full of trophies over the years, turn to page 112 and you'll soon see why.
